Freedom. It is fought, bled, lost, and won. Among many other actions humans have done along history, this word means almost all to us. Governments fight wars in the name of this word. As always, my intention is not to write about politics or current situations, which maybe I should do, since we live in a loveless world that focuses in vengeance and not in giving a chance to people, to be people. To be free in the heart.
The freedom I am talking about, is the freedom of a person, man or woman, to express what he or she feels towards another person. Freedom to say I love you without being told to remain in silence. Freedom to say I need you, to say I desire you, to say that without you I can not be as happy as how I feel when I am alone. We have forgotten to accept the fact that we can be loved, society wants us to be lonely, to grow fond of the idea that we must be able to do all by ourselves, so when someone loves us, we must know that we do not need them. We do not need to be loved in today's world.
What has happened, that we have lost our desire to be with someone, that we need to prove ourselves that we are able to do all by ourselves before we can be with someone? What happened with the thought that, maybe, we are simply a better person when we are with that someone special? In my case, I know I can do many things by myself, but I am sure that when I have that special person, I do them better, I do them with more love, because I do not only do it with my desires in my heart, but I do it having her in my heart. Not because I need to, but because I desire to. I believe in soul mates, someone that makes you be better than when you are alone. I believe in doing all in order to find that person. I believe in doing all to keep that person once you have found it. I believe that the special person is able to make your life better.
I am not afraid to admit that I can depend on that person, because when I choose that person, or life chooses for me, that person is someone I truly trust, someone I know that if I fall, she can pick me up. In a way, that trust is one of the foundations of a relationship, believing in each other, to make the happy moments happier, and to make the difficult easier. I am not afraid to say, that in a world that pushes us to be alone, I'd rather be with someone meaningful to my heart.
So today, I encourage all, not to be afraid, to feel free, to hold the hands of the loved one, to look into her/his eyes, and simply say all that you have in your heart. To say all, without expecting anything in return, just for the joy of saying it, of letting your heart reach the pinnacle of emotions, of letting it live by saying all. Let go of all feelings within your heart. Take a chance. You deserve it, and more than anything, that person deserves to hear all you have in your heart.
This is a new beginning of writings, the first of hopefully many more. The first part was compiled in a book of love and relationships that were meaningful to my life, now I intend to write about pure emotions: sadness, freedom, pain....
